Fundraising Success with
Transparency, Trust, & Innovation

An Insider's Look Behind the Scenes

We believe that we must innovate to ensure the ongoing mission of Believe in Me (the Foundation) and its programs. Earning your trust with transparency and consistency is the key to our strategy for long-term success.

We rely upon the joint efforts of a team of finance and business professionals that comprise our Finance, Investments, and Property Management Committee. We consistently strive for new and different ways to stretch the value of every donation. Our innovative team has developed a diversified portfolio to ensure the sustainability of our mission for generations to come.
